Box Score | Boxscore

SEATTLE – The #22 Washington Huskies played another heart-pumping game, winning 2-1 over the #24 Cal Bears on Sunday. Washington trailed at the half but fought back with two second-half goals, with the gamewinner from Sianna Siemonsma coming in the 83rd minute.

Washington moves to 5-1-2 on the season and 2-1-2 in Pac-12 play with the win. The Huskies still have not allowed multiple goals in a game this season. Washington has outshot the opposition in seven of its eight games this year after outshooting Cal 15-10 today.

Summer Yates had two assists in the game, her second multi-point game of the season. Ameera Hussen had the other Husky goal, a beautiful curler in the 66th minute.

The Huskies trailed 1-0 at the half but took over in the second 45. Washington allowed only three shots in the second half and none on goal in that time, outshooting Cal 7-3. All three of those shots by Cal came by the 60th minute: Washington did not allow a single shot in the final 30 minutes, scoring both its goals in that time for the win.

  • 7' | Cal scored early on, marking the first time Washington has trailed in the first half this season.
  • 66' | Woods grabbed a loose ball bouncing out of the box and passed back to Yates. The junior carried it for a few seconds before a charging Hussen made her way into a dangerous position and received the pass. Hussen's shot curved away from goal and inside the left post to tie the game.
  • 83' | Yates took a hard step to deflect an attempted clearance by Cal. The ball bounced straight to Siemonsma in the box, where she fired away to take the lead before the keeper could react.
